Lust in Love

“If they substituted the word ‘Lust’ for ‘Love’ in the popular songs it would come nearer the truth.” ~ Sylvia Plath

 

Souls
can feed
on tamed kisses,
but flesh craves wild
lust.

Lust
can be
the best treat,
when the flesh feels
loved.

 

Passion, by Wiktoria Florek

 

a wee note…
elfchen (elevenie), five lines of free verse that dance like this: 1st line (1 word), 2nd line (2 words), 3rd line (3 words), 4th line (4 words), 5th line (1 word). I coupled these wee bits for Poets United’s Midweek Motif: Lust.
